Department of Education


The purpose of the Department of Education at WTAMU is to prepare professional educators who are academically and technically proficient, reflective in practice, committed to intellectual empowerment of others and guided by the larger democratic purposes of American education.

The teacher education program is University-wide in scope with each individual department making its contribution to the program.  The director of teacher education is the administrative officer of the University who is immediately responsible for the teacher education program.  The director is chairman of the Teacher Education Unit, composed of faculty members chosen from the University colleges and schools.  The Unit has the responsibility for approval of the teacher education curricula of the University and approval of admissions criteria to the teacher education program.
